Social equality for digital rural areas
Multiple sources (Focus area spearhead projects)
University of Oulu
Our research aims to identify aspects that hinder social equality among young people in rural areas and highlight aspects that can mitigate social inequality, as there is a need for visionary views on the future of work and life in rural areas in a digital era. The digital society should make it possible to live and work in rural areas on equal terms with more densely populated areas. Key question is: can we participate fully in society and have access to the necessary services independent of where we live?
